Have you ever set a New Year’s Resolution or goal — only for your excitement to fizzle out a few weeks later?

You’re not alone. A study by the Journal of Clinical Psychology shows that most people make the same resolution 10 times without success. Ten times.

This doesn’t have to be you. Whether you want to write a book, start a business, strengthen your body, or upgrade your health — your dreams deserve to see the light of day.

Success doesn't come from what you do occasionally. It comes from what you do consistently. Click To Tweet

On today’s MarieTV, you’ll learn three science-backed strategies that will help you make that happen.

These habits are simple and easy to implement. More importantly, they will radically increase your odds of achieving any goal.

If you have big dreams, this episode is a must-watch. These three habits will keep you focused and consistent — all year long.

Here’s a quick recap of everything you just learned. 

Scroll all the way down to enter a special LIMITED TIME giveaway!

Strategy #1: Write Down Your Goal — Every. Day. 

You’ve probably heard this advice a million times, but hardly anyone actually does it! Dr. Gail Matthews, a professor of psychology at Dominican University discovered that people who write down their goals are 42% more likely to achieve them. 

Here’s why it works. Writing down your top goals every day means you’ll look at them every day. It’s a constant, powerful reminder of where to put your focus.

Personally, I write my #1 goal at least 15 times every morning. In fact, I did that when I was writing Everything is Figureoutable. I wrote, “I am a #1 NY Times Bestseller” 15 times per day, every day for at least 18 months. Obviously, I worked my tail off for far longer and did many things to support the book, but that goal did happen.  

If you’re truly serious about achieving your goals this year, write them down. Daily.

Strategy # 2. Schedule Where & When You’ll Take Action 

For years I’ve told my B-Schoolers, “If it’s not scheduled, it’s not real.” And there’s science to back it up: 

Dr. Heidi Grant Halvorson, a social psychologist who studies goal setting and motivation found that “deciding in advance when and where you’ll take specific actions to reach your goal can double or triple your chances for success.” 

Translation: You’re 2-3X more likely to achieve your goal if you schedule in your calendar when and where you’ll take action on your goals. 

This habit only takes 4 minutes and will make you massively more productive in any area of your life. If you want to dial up your chances even more, make a contingency plan too. Plan ahead for problems or setbacks that could throw you off your game. When they pop up, you’ll be glad you solved them in advance. 

Strategy #3. Set An Appointment To Update A Friend 

Your environment also has enormous influence over the way you think, feel, and behave. Over time, your environment — and the people in it— can make or break your success.

According to The American Society of Training and Development, you have a 65% greater chance of completing a goal if you commit to someone. Even better, making a specific “accountability appointment” with another person can increase your chances of success by up to 95%. 

That’s a lot. 

It doesn’t have to be complicated, either. For example, set a weekly standing appointment where you and a friend agree to text an update about your goals at 5pm. It’s so simple and yet you just made it 95% more likely that you’ll achieve your goals.

    I’m going to start by writing my goals down today

    • Denisa Sabou

      This is not a New Year Resolution, but I decided last year that I will finish my bachelor thesis. Before the end of the year I was pretty sad that I won’t be able to finish it on time( I had 25 pages left) , due to the deadline which is on mid January. But 2 weeks ago, I got motivated, wrote it down and started to put much more effort, so now I am on the right track.
      So I made that conscious decision and I worked every day on it since the end of the year (today I wrote 4 pages, feeling proud👏).
      I am planning to write around 4 pages tomorrow too, and after I’ll finish, I’ll reply to my comment. This is a great idea Marie! Even if I will win, or not, this is going to help me to stay on track. 😉 Thank youuu!

      • My goal is to help people change the way they currently view their bodies and achieve life lasting wellness. First step, putting more time into my passion job, and out of my corporate job.

        • Nicole Slegers

          Done. @coliegaga on Insta

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        That’s amazing, Denisa! Way to take serious action. We’re cheering you on as you finish that thesis!

        • Denisa Sabou

          Thank you Julia. I am enjoying this challenge:)

          • Debra

            My goals start now with the right mindset.

      • Denisa Sabou

        Done! For today:)

      • Toni Natoli

        Denisa, consider me inspired! Thank you for your example.

      • Denisa, that’s so exciting! Way to get back on the horse and make an investment in YOU!

        My biggest goal this year is to settle into a home with my sweetie. We’re getting married in July, and house hunting at the same time! It means paying off debt and increasing business revenue so that we’re not strung out on a 30-year mortgage or going into debt for the wedding. The very next step is completing an intake form for the new copywriter I’m hiring to help upgrade my sales and marketing messaging.

      • You can totally do this Denisa! Especially that you are breaking it down into small chunks of time and effort. It will be so worth it!!! You’ve got this!!!

      • I have always enjoyed writing…every since High School. I’ve written poems, a play, and conducted some interviews that were turned into articles for a local magazine that was in my city. I also do a lot of writing on my facebook business page. I also have coordinated 2 talent/variety shows, a dinner and play event, and a Mental Healt h and self care event. I enjoy bringing ppl together. Through writing, I hope to connect to single mothers, women who want to release stress, women who would like to turn their experiences into something meaningful through writing, and more.

      • Congrats Denisa, you got in before the deadline, sending you all the best & joy while you complete this work/phase in your life!

        Thanks Marie, for this New Jersey no bs b-school 🙌🏾

    Break down and demolish every damn barrier and fear around loving unconditionally – in every sense of the word.

    • Michelle

      Not only did I schedule my day so time was allotted for all that needed to get done, but I also helped a friend go through her goals and shared this method with her!

  14. I am scheduling and facilitating, through 2020, 8 one-day self hypnosis workshops and 8- 2 1/2 day hypnosis certification workshops. I am excited to teach women how they can use hypnosis to help them achieve their goals!

  16. Create a content calendar to keep me consistent in posts for my business (i.e. blog posts, social media, newsletters). Setting each day to complete a specific task so I take less time figuring out what I need to do and just do it!

    • DONE!!! 🙂

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        Amazing Heather!! You’re going to ROCK this year! 👏🏻

This includes exercise indoors(my home and at gym) and outdoors(getting out in nature!) as well as how many ounces of water I will drink each day, my journaling. (adding the 15 times rule to it now. Thanks for that Marie) and meal planning each weekend. I have downloaded a fabulous app to help me with the planning and the shopping. #2020goals are on point!
    PS…found the wonderful habit tracker on bunnymetsunny.com if anyone needs free downloads for organizing beyond the great on already offered by Marie.(I am in no way affiliated, just sharing in case it is helpful.) Happy New Year! So excited for your success. (oh and my website is under construction…a professional goal. Working with my B School info. today to get that done too!)

  25. Dear Marie Forleo and your amazing team.

    I have follow you for really long long time and you are teaching many lessons that I can apply to my life which also help others life become better as they told me that.
    Thank to your inspriration, I have create my website where I note all the lessons that I have learned from your video in Vietnamese.

    Or my decade in review video ( @MarieForleo #MFDecadeInReview) that I also make base on your video.

    I am really hope that I can get your signed book and cute bottle, notebook and stickers from you. This will be the best gift ever that I have chance to get.
    My goals is become no missing blogger as Seth Godin teach us, he never miss any blog post.
    WHERE: At my house
    WHEN: Everyday before 9 am

  26. My goal for 2020 was to start my 1st bullet journal to take charge of my schedule and productivity rhythm (I work full-time and most planners cater towards weekday productivity but I primarily have Sat / Sun to get my major goals accomplished for myself).

    With putting my goals / bullet off during the month of Dec., I scheduled a time to go to my local library, committed to setting the journal up and identifying my intensions for the following week. And you know what?

    I DID IT! And I found that by changing my environment from my apartment to a public space, I was WAY more productive. Being at the library and giving myself structure to not check my phone / relax allowed me to create the space I needed to take action.

    Thanks Marie for all your insight! I’ve been watching you since 2012 and you have helped me grow so much over the years. Thank you for you and your team in everything you guys do!

    • **
      1. Comment below and tell me where and when you’ll take that first action step.
      DONE!!! See Above ^^
      2. GET TO IT! Then reply to your comment with the words “Done!” or “I did it!”
      DONE!!! Bullet journal forces me to write everything down which is so much more effective than using my phone. I find I am more intentionally and thoughtful with my inputs.
      3. Like this IG post & tag at least two friends and help them reach their goals.
      DONE!!!!!!

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        GO Cassandra!! We love that you’re changing up your environment and habits this year to stay motivated and on track. Sounds like you’re off to an amazing start – we’re so pumped for you and all that 2020 holds!

    A doctor appointment this week revealed that I developed 2 new inflammatory conditions. I’m putting (me and) my health first, for once. I will wake up every morning at 4am and exercise for 50 minutes in my living room, starting tomorrow!

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      This is a wonderful goal to take good care of you and your health, Kristine. It really is the most important thing and we love that you’re making it a priority. We’re cheering you on, and wishing you such a happy, healthy 2020. You can do this!

  44. Yazhini

    Start reading a new book every week.

    • Yazhini

      I did it!
      P.S. it’s funny because only yesterday I was watching Sunny Lenarduzzi and Marie video call on YouTube and signed up for the B-school wait list. And I saw this today. Cool!

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        We love that synchronicity, Yazhini! So happy to be connected with you and excited for you to do all the reading this year!

  45. I became a new mom a year ago and I honestly feel like every single goal I had prior to having my baby has basically evaporated. I think, feel and even act different. It’s been very confusing & nerve racking trying to understand who I am now. It’s actually painful in a way but I now feel the need to allow this transformation to bloom. But I need to write down my feelings, my thoughts and start figuring out how I want this new mama to live life. So my goal is to write all of this down and start tomorrow with a new willingness to begin living my life as I want to. xoxo

    • I’m doing this, here in my bedroom while baby sleeps. Right.Now.

      • I had to finish while breastfeeding lol but I did it! It’s done. Thank you for this little exercise Marie❣️

        • ♥️ I 100% understand, mama.

        • Julia - Team Forleo

          So proud of you, Yunuen! This is such a huge transformation to go through, so keep being gentle with yourself in the process. Journaling is such a powerful way to tune into that wisdom within. We love that you’re embracing the transformation while staying deeply connected with yourself. Beautiful! XO

    • One of my top goals of 2020 is to get my plantain flour baking mix distributed on Amazon. My first action step is to write, “Mama Emma’s Waffle & Pancake Mix is sold on Amazon” 15x per day in my journal starting now! Thank you for bringing this nugget o’ wisdom back into my life, Marie! 🙌🏽

      • Aaaaand DONE! (man, I forgot how much wrist strength that takes ✍️ all worth it in the end! #nopainnogain)

        • Julia - Team Forleo

          Amazing job, Emmanuela! We’re SO excited for you to get this goodness out into the world! 🙌🏻

  46. One of the important goals I have is to double my freelance income, especially now that I don’t have my cubicle job. I was thrown into freelance full time due to the company closing down after announcing bankruptcy. I had amazing friends supporting me and telling me to get going by doing design work more and more. I’m going to show up on social media more, share my talent, share my work. I want to have financial freedom that comes with the flexible schedule of freelancing. I’ll write out the schedule for every day, schedule in hours to improve my skills, and create content to share as well.

  47. Taylor

    I’m going to write down my goals and then write them daily. I’m also going to put in my 2 weeks notice at work on 1/31/20. I’m going to step out on faith and launch the projects I have been working on for years. I was afraid to fail but now I have let go of that fear.

    • Kate - Team Forleo

      We believe in you, Taylor! Keep taking action and writing down your goals. We’d love to hear how things are going so please keep us posted — we’ll be cheering you on 🙌

  48. I will write my #1 goal today on my notebook on the Uber going home 15 times! And I did it!

  49. Michelle

    Schedule work time every day for my side gig so it can be my full time gig when I retire in <4 years!

  50. Christi

    I’m going to get active for at least 30 minutes a day. I’ll take a 30 minute walk outside or do a workout in my living room.

    • Christi

      Done!! I walked my dog today after work! Feels good to get outside.

      • Kate - Team Forleo

        Great job, Christi! There’s nothing like fresh air and movement to get you feeling good 😊

  51. Tonight, January 6th 2020

    ✨I will start by writing on paper the 3 big projects my small business (Cocina del Corazón) has to accomplish in the next 2 months.
    I will break down each project in smaller and more manageable tasks and will attach a deadline to each task.
    I will reach out to a friend and fellow business owner and explain my timeline and deadlines. This will keep me more accountable.✨

    • ✨Working on de-constructing the goals I want to achieve, while implementing in writing the habits and actions I need to take! ✨

      *all while listening to Sade*

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        Beautiful, Jazmin! It sounds like you’re off to a fantastic start. And we love the addition of Sade! ✨

  52. LeeAnn

    I am going to take back my health and well-being. I haven’t taken care of myself since losing my son and now I feel like I’m at a turning point and need to take action. I am going to schedule an appointment with a physiatrist to help guide me because I’m feeling very lost and overwhelmed! And I’m going to schedule time to do this during my breaks at work, so no excuses of being too tired when I get home. Thank you for the great tips!

    • Dawnna Hetherington

      ((((💖)))) You got this ((((💖))))

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      We’re sending you SO much love and encouragement, Leeann – you can do this! This sounds like the perfect, totally doable first step. Please keep us posted! I also have a feeling you may find this episode helpful: https://www.marieforleo.com/2013/05/feeling-lost/. 😘

    • LeeAnn

      First step taken! Appointments scheduled!

  53. I will do my power hour tomorrow January 7th in my home office of my 4 income producing activities.

  54. Heather

    I am going to stop undermining myself and my goals. I’m tired of allowing the imposter syndrome to take over my brain space. I am going to start changing this pattern of unhelpful thinking by writing in a journal 5 things that I did well each day…starting tonight.

  55. Hi Marie and Team! 💕 Happy New Year!
    I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since 2019 B School and I’m ready for round 2. So here’s my T on what I’ve been working on and why it’s so important.
    I’m a voice coach in North Carolina (originally from Miami) and run a full time voice studio both in studio and online helping singers, podcasters, speakers, mentors, voice over actors and pretty much all things vocal. I absolutely love what I do and very fortunate and grateful to do it. I love working with so many beautiful people looking to enrich their voice and the way they wish to present there passions. I have the opportunity to work with each voice from the inside out where many times the brain will have thoughts that may try to get in the way of opening ones voice to its fullest. It’s amazing how old messages hold back the voice and we don’t even realize it. This is why the work I do is so meaningful and healing. The transformations I get to witness are amazing to say the least, and having the gift in helping empower voices is beyond anything I could have imagined. Now here’s the why…the healing that occurs in each session goes deeper than just the sound of our voice. It’s a catalyst in transforming lives and breaking through old ideas and perceptions. To help others work through the fears around their voice, which is super personal to pretty much everyone. It builds trust and opens one up to an honesty and a self love that translate into confidence to speak up in ones life on all levels. Whether in business, families and relationships, creativity and passions. To help make an impact in the world one voice at a time is and has been my biggest desire. I know what it’s like to have my voice stifled. I know what it’s like to feel like I’m doomed to be a victim. Working with voice has opened up an accountability process, an honesty, a truth, and the action taker in me personally. To share the tools, methods, and techniques with others and watch them flourish is a never ending remedy to spread the love. I’m super thrilled to roll through B School again soon and always more than grateful for Marie and all your hard work as a team to pull it all together. I can’t wait for the 2020 vision. 💕
    All my love 💕 nyla

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      You’re doing SUCH beautiful and important work in the world, Nyla! We couldn’t be more proud to have you as a B-Schooler. Here’s to all of us finding our truest voice in 2020 and beyond! We can’t wait to see all you’ll continue to create. XOXO 💕

  56. Jenny

    I’m going to start my Pilates teaching career and inspire others to be their best!

  57. Sandra Perez

    I downloaded & printed the simple calendar tool. So that’s where I’ll write down my goals monthly and track my progress daily. There’s a few items like books I’m reading & 5am wake up for 30 min @home workouts fro home before getting ready for work.

    • Sandra Perez

      I’ did it! Revisiting my goal sheet daily and reading. But to be brutally honest the 5am wake up call isn’t working out. Perhaps I revisit the plan of a few days per week instead of trying every day and failing. I got this!

  58. I’m going to schedule my workout for tomorrow in my planner at my kitchen table. My intent is to love me right and it starts with loving care of my body, you know what I’m saying 😉 like right now…

    • Andrea

      My most important goal, is to enhance my spiritual health. I have written this goal in my success planner, and I have been reading steps to personal revival by Helmut Haubeil every morning since January 1st, 2020. I feel optimistic, energetic and have even started to declutter my home. And yesterday when I had to take a financial loss and let go a contractor who was doing the reno on one of my rental properties, I didn’t beat myself up and ruminate over it like I would in the past. Instead I was able to exercise a positive mindset and express the gratitude of the lessons learned, and I’ll just soldier on!

      • Andrea

        I did it, and I’m doing it!

        • Julia - Team Forleo

          Amazing, Andrea – you’re absolutely doing it! 💖 Wishing you such a beautiful year of growth and health ahead.

  59. Maria Flores

    I started writing my 5 major 2020 goals this morning in our living room. I decided too that writing is part of it, that I will be doing it again everyday, listing my goal until my subconscious store it and help me take action. I’ve done this few years ago and I did get some of those goals. It works! Now that exercising is one of my goals this 2020 on a consistent basis, my action is to do it in our living room around 8 in the morning.

  60. Maria Flores

    Done!

    Our 3 top goals for 2020 are:
    1. take the new baby: Proactivvity through B-school and do every single task diligently – I’m already in! ✅
    2. as Proactivvity founder maintain a consistent meditation 🧘‍♀️ exercise/yoga and journaling practice every day of 2020 to stay healthy, concentrate on my goals, and be grateful. This morning ✅
    3. By the end of 2020 enjoy the financial success of Proactivvity to be able to create new tools and help more women be proactive! First group coaching set for march ✅ Business meeting with partners set for this Wednesday ✅
    It took some time and struggle to understand that I was never going to be 100% ready,
    that I was the sole good fairy 🧚🏻‍♀️ of my life and so I got to decide about my future self by choosing to act or to keep on ruminating over my imperfections. But here I am in 2020: good enough!
    I have all that it takes to act and the rest is … FIGUREOUTABLE.
    Proactivvity is a huge fan of MF!
    We love 💕 you Marie for your positivity! It’s contagious. We also value tremendously you talking about the hard work that has to be put up. 🙏👏👏🌟🤗💚✅

    I also run an award-winning boutique Bed and Breakfast called “The Empty Nest”. I need to double my income this season in order to stay in my home.
    I was never an entrepreneur. I was a stay-at-home Mom until my husband of 27 years decided he didn’t want to be married to me anymore.
    It was your comment “The world needs…” that put me into action.
    Please…I want your book, the Journal, and those adorable stickers. Pick me, Pick me!

    Marie

  100. Melanie Timmins

    Hey Marie, today is the day for me to put these steps into action for my NY resos! Journal at the ready here and ….. here we go!!

  101. Yay! I’m writing down my goals every single day! And I’m going to figure out what they are too 🙂

  102. Liesl

    My goal this year is to :-
    Every day write 3 goals for the next day that are focused on making me healthy, happier or wealthier , not the little things I will already do.
    Every day review 3 goals and feel great for achieving them
    Every day journal for a little bit, this should be feeling focused so that I start to identify, acknowledge and dig a bit deeper with my feelings and responses
    Every day meditate and exercise even if only for a few minutes each.

    I have completed this for 2 days in a row. The way I am journaling is new and more specific than previously and more regular and I like it.

    Exercising and meditating were semi regular but it feels achievable to just say a few minutes EVERY day. Yay 😃. I feel more like my best self when I do this.

    • Liesl

      I will do this in my journal, in bed before bedtime.
      Done ✅

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        Yes, Liesl! Those small, consistent, everyday actions are HUGE. We love this – great work on getting specific!

  103. To aim is to bring my business back to a successful place – after a big burnout – without compromising myself and my energy ever again.
    Create more beautiful art work and inspiring more people globally, especially in the US and Asia – so in being brave again the goal is to make connections and make myself proud.

    *Message 1-3 people a day from my home studio and remind them about my work and start getting those conversations going!

    Thank You Marie,
    I’m still enjoying working from your book and loved the 5 day workshop
    Still writing every morning too!

  104. I’m going to write down my goals today at my desk.

  105. My big goal for the year is to streamline my Craft Business. We have started by re-doing my craft room so it is less of a junk room and will be a much nicer place to go and work when health permits. At the same time, I am trying hard to reduce the number of Crafts I can make, currently, I’m very eclectic but this means that I am constantly being tempted to make new things, so from here on in they have to tie in with the themes/styles I have outlined to be my Spratt’s Designs style. Then I plan to utilise this focus to increase my sales by using this ‘style’ to convey to new and my existing customers. So the key to this goal, and writing everything down will boost this is to check everything I do from making to advertising to packing, everything fits in with that streamline goal and style theme. I have already started and can say done to bits, but I will need to keep writing this goal daily as long as I run my business as I will need to account everything I do to (figuring it out) meeting it xx Saz

  106. Katiefro

    My goal is to run a 10K once a week! I have them scheduled into my calendar to run on each Saturday morning. I have written the goal down in my journal with a spot for me to check off each week as I go!

  107. Hi MF team and watchers-readers-listeners- lifeactors!
    I decided at the end of last year through a divine push that I needed to dedicate myself wholeheartedly to my main art practice which is charcoal drawing, to allow myself to connect deeply with it and to recreate my career on another level of engagement for myself and others.
    1) Make the work
    2) Diffuse it and connect with people to inspire them to action and/or a deeper relationship with themselves.
    3) Exhibit and sell to provide for my family.
    4) Trust that in taking one step towards the gods they will take ten towards me.

    • Done the 4 steps and had some results in each category immediately!

      The challenge is to stay focused and connected with the divine push that inspired me to begin again and to take action every day without the pressure that provoked me to take a long break….

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        Amazing job, Linet! We love that you’re staying connected to your divine purpose in making and sharing your art with the world. Keep being kind and gentle with yourself ❤️ The world needs your beautiful gifts!

  122. Hi Marie and team,
    I already have the book, read it and am doing the book with my husband. So an extra copy is always nice (we go “where did you leave the Forleo?) And I love the journal and bottle!
    My #1 goal is to sell 60.000 euro’s worth of products and coaching in my business this year. Pretty steep, but inspiring. My first step I actually scheduled in for today: write a free mini course optin. So I’ll be back when I’m done!
    Much love and huge thanks for all the inspiration and motivation!

    Monique

    • Julia - Team Forleo

  124. Vicki

    Thanks so much Marie! My goal is to finally get slim and healthy. I will start writing that down every day. I already have in place an arrangement with a friend for mutual accountability.

    • Mary

  126. Asipita

    One of my goals this year is to get a distinction in my MBA thesis. I’ve started by writing it down! 🙂
    I’ll take action by working on it twice a day for three hours in total, one hour in the morning before lunchtime and two hours in the evening between 9 and 11pm.
    Go, go go!!
    Thanks Marie.

    • Asipita

      So, after finishing a full working day; laying my one year old down to sleep for the night and; feeling a bit exhausted from another long day: I sat down, studied and wrote a bit for another chapter.

      There have frankly been moments when my approach to tackling this was not working and I am sometimes still plagued by doubts. Nevertheless, I continue to:
      – Say it out Loud: “Everything is figureoutable”
      – Take a breath and touch my heart
      – Assign an empowering meaning
      – Reinforce
      – Take the next best action!

      DONE!! 🙂
      Everything really is figureoutable and a little progress helps.

      The possibility of getting a signed copy of ‘Everything is Figureoutable’ and a journal to match is bringing a smile to my face and a warmth to my body. Here’s to being hopeful!

      Two friends tagged as well, yay!

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        Yes Asipita! We’re so happy you’re using those steps to move through any doubts and keep making progress towards your goal. You’re doing AMAZING – keep going!

  127. I wrote down my 8 top goals for the year, dissected them and felt really accomplished. However, I haven’t looked at them since and it’s been 5 days!! Right now, I am going to go write them down again, stick them on my bathroom mirror so I can see them everyday and get serious! One of my top goals is to raise $20,000 for my non-profit that just got approved for tax exemption to bring holistic practices to people suffering from substance abuse disorder. This is serious business, Marie! No more days without looking at this goal and the 7 others. Thank you for the kick in the butt, it came exactly when I needed it! 🙂

    • Done and done! 💪🙏✨

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        So glad this came at the perfect time for you, Sydney 🙂 You’re incredible. What an amazing, important initiative. We’ll be cheering you on big time over here as you bring this to life!

  128. I will create content and blog daily to sell my room starter design packages online to help the many people who don’t know where to start when putting their space together. I plan to take action every day consistently to move the needle forward. xo Nicole

  129. GOAL – Finish setting up and actually LAUNCHING my newly-revised website, with my very first blog I’ve been making up excuses to get out into the world for yeeeeeaaaaarrrrrrs! Yikes.

    WHEN – I’ll be working on this puppy starting at 8a-4p every day this week, while working my other at-home (temporary) job.

    WHERE – In front of my brand new mac I purchased specifically for this reason.

    Marie, I read and highlighted the ____ out of the hardcopy version of your book I preordered, then flew all the way to London from the US and got another version which I gave to my momma, and now seeking another copy with those extra goodies to share with my sister. Your energy is magic and pure empowerment.

    P.S. Although just getting it out into the world, I’ll be teaching all about magic. One of the ‘tricks’ with magic is even though you’re scared out of your mind to push forward with a goal, you can change the game by simply saying aloud, ‘In myself I believe, so I shall achieve.’

    Love, Tabitha

  130. Yentl

    HEYYY… Right now 6:45 AM in my Living Room. Allentown, PA 🙂 YAY

In 2019 I took a workshop to be a Body Mechanic Instructor for Massage Therapists and I have been lame and not thinking I am good enough yet but you and your philosophy have helped me immensely to break out of my shell. So all my top 8 Goals revolve around that project. I just bought your book in Amazon too lol, but I would love a signed copy for myself and give the one I currently have to someone I know who needs it. An awesome person from work who would rock this book. Thank you so much!

      • Julia - Team Forleo

  137. My big goal in 2020 is to grow my business and actualy get paid for helping people regain their mental health using equine facilitated therapy.
    Today I´m gonna sit down at my office and write 3 motivated applications in order to apply for financial means to grow my business.

  138. Hi Marie,
    Thank you for your words. I’m so grateful that I opened your email. I have been a professional procrastinator my whole life and I am making this year the year I become someone new, although I’ve been in the making for the past 10 months as I’ve traveled around the world. I have never believed in making Resolutions for the new year, just the best changes that I possibly can. This year I’m living these changes.
    My dad died about a year and a half ago after a turbulent and rapid bout with cancer. This has been the some of the most difficult few years of my life, and I’ve put myself through some terror in my adolescence. My dad had dreams and talent that he never put into action and reality, which I believe to be part of his karmic cycles. He was such a gifted musician, but never recorded, because he believed in his sister more than himself.
    This year, I will be starting my own business(es) hosting Kundalini Yoga and Adventure retreats, getting my unique meditation and yoga mats into production, and fulfilling my goal of only working for myself and the people that I’ll serve from here on.
    This month I will launch AudazLife.com
    Audaz is a Spanish word that means Courageous or Bold, a person who takes action without dwelling on the risks of their action. With Audaz, we will practice the gift of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, while learning to give in to the what scares is, and finding the adventure around us and within. Stepping and living beyond our comfort zones is exactly where we can grow. This is what I intend to share with the world and all who will apply, with a higher conciousness vibe in mind. My goal is to share the message with good for all concerned.
    The message that my father did give me in his lifetime, was to always stay positive, no matter what. With that in mind, I know that with the steps of action that I take each and every day I will grow and flourish in this month, this year, this life. I know that I can and will share my message of love and bravery, a message of truth.
    Please look out for http://www.AudazLife.com coming in hot in 2020 and join me as we explore our relationship with ourselves, the world, and beyond.
    Much love and big hugs,
    GuruRattan Kaur

    • I did it! 😍

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        This is so beautiful, GuruRattan! Thank you for sharing your story with us here. It’s clear that you’re carrying on your father’s legacy in such a special way with your own gifts and we’re so excited for you as you launch your incredible business out into the world this year!

  139. My dream is to spread the wonders of LEARNING in people’s lives. I am going to start on January 16th in a retreat on the countryside here in Brazil (Fazenda da Furquilha) Since I have to comment “Done” on the post, here is another goal: c0mplete my gratitude list, now, in my room… BRB

  140. Alex

    I just got a new planner and scheduling my writing is the first thing going in there!

    • Alex

      Just did it – 3:30 PM, in the dining room. But I don’t have instagram 🙁 that’s okay, I’ll win by achieving my goals ;)!

  141. Christina Bates

    • Christina Bates

      Done

  142. Nyree

    I would love to set goals though following a tough year – racial, sexist, bullying, Rejection from new job applications because I don’t have a degree, learning a new language in the country I am living in and feel complete isolation. I am now suffering from severe depression all thanks to my work place. I am a one parent family support uni children so I need to work.
    I am lost and for the goals I just cannot set. I am generally – honest Governor have a happy and positive disposition. 46 yrs old and just feel where does one go…
    I wish to achieve yet it is that vicious circle….

  143. My first Action step is to continue creating the habit shifting free course so people can ditch their bad habits and addictions and live their best life.

    • Janet Miller

      I’m writing my goal down daily. Scheduling in exercise and daily gratitude, meal prepping twice a week, seeing people who lift me up, planning and organizing all things related to health so it remains a priority and checking in daily with my husband.

  145. Rosemarie Sugatan

    I love being able to get the chance to win Marie stuff! Plus, my name is Rosemarie (nickname is Marie) so I’m doubly excited!
    I’ve been a voice over artist for 15 years in Manila, Philippines, and I earn good money, enough to keep our family fed and clothed and our children in school. But I want to take my voice over business to the next level and earn more for my family. (Who doesn’t?) I don’t want to have to worry about the future anymore. I don’t want to feel like a fool again buying a domain name and not knowing the first thing on how to build my website, and just give up. I’ve done it a few times, and it’s both embarrassing and humbling.
    This time, it will be different.
    My goal is to grow my voice over business and propel it forward. Where am I going to do this? I will start here at home, because here I have my little studio with some recording equipment. When will I do this? Now. After watching this episode of Marie’s videos. Starting today, I will write down my goal, every single day; plan where and when I will act on it; and be accountable to someone (most likely my husband!).
    I’ve also signed up for B-School after being hesitant about it for several years. I kept saying I couldn’t afford it, it may not be for me, etc., etc. But I feel different about it now. I AM going to B-School in February!
    I’m nervous and delighted at the same time. This will be my year!

    • Rosemarie Sugatan

      Done!

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        Rosemarie! We’re SO excited for you that you’re taking your goal to the next level of commitment and follow-through this year. It would be our honor to support you in growing your voice over business through B-School. That nervous excitement is such a good sign! We can’t wait to connect with you in the program soon ☺️

        • Rosemarie Sugatan

          Thank you, Julia, and the rest of your team, and of course, Marie! Psyched!

  146. My goal for this year is to release 25 books. I will release my first book on January 13th.

    • DONE. Judging Ginger is up for PreSale at Amazon. Book one will release officially on January 13th.

  147. Moving to a new home, before the 10th, perfect environment to write my second book and start my online biz.

  152. My biggest goal this year is to take control of my business finances so that I can finally have a highly profitable business. The first step is meeting with an accountant to understand and make a plan!

  157. Dolores

    My goal this year is to start a (or multiple) side hustles that will surpass my current income so that I don’t have to work for a ego maniac manager in a world full of men who have ZERO respect for women. I will make a list of everything I am good at that I can profit from by noon today.

  158. Kylee

    After overcoming a long illness and having my life changed I find I’m no longer in a position to do the job I used to do. With 4 children, a mountain of debt from the last 5 years I NEED to work. So, I’ve decided to find my passion. To retrain to do a job in line with what I feel my purpose is. I want to use what I have been through/going through to help others in a similar situation to myself. Using techniques, tools and support that benefited me as a mindfulness and wellness coach.
    Marie you have inspired me so much and are constantly helping me to keep my focus. Thank you 🙏 xxx

    My goal for the year, professionally speaking, is to achieve a certain promotion by May 25th, 2020. I will work from home from 8:15-10:45 on that goal daily while my kiddos are in pre-K.

    Hi Marie and Team!
    First of all, happy New Year!!! \o/
    I intend to begin my journey on the writers’ path this year finally!!! =,) After a decade of not being sure, doubting myself, hesitating, and so on (you know the song…) I’m so excited about it! =D
    So I will begin with the very first volume and from now on each year will see the next volume coming to life! =)
    I have already begun this journey as I’m currently working on looking for historic ressources, gathering every notes I’ve collected for many years (God! How many are ya???) and most of all working on the plan and the planning side of this huge project! Because nothing is more important than a good preparation to tame such a beast! =D
    See ya when the planning and the story plan are done!
    Thank you for having read me! ^^
    Take care.
    Amanda

  164. Sabrina

    I’m going to design a workshop program that infuses coaching and design thinking methodology. I will work on this every second Saturday until March.

  165. I am a freelance designer, and my biggest goal this year is to grow my business by getting more clients and improving my portfolio, offering more kinds of illustration work. (I’m currently working almost exclusively with textile design, but want to find clients in editorial illustration, for example).
    So, first action, that I’ve already started and I plan to get done today, is to plan every action I need to do this year to achieve that goal, and schedule when to do each one. Also, starting to make contacts and reaching for possible new clients.

  166. Hanna

    I am going to find a weekly accountability partner.

  167. Sarah B.

    I went through Jan and scheduled gym visits. Goal is to do something active but even a hot tub soak or steam room visit keeps me in the habit of going.

  168. Susan

    Meet my friend at 5:15 on Tuesday and Thursday for spin class. This will help with my goal of being fit and healthy. I did it!

  169. I will contact a perfect accountability buddy and organize a regular strategy and accountability meeting to stay focused and on target.

  170. I’ll start by writing my goals 15 times in my notebook right now!

  171. Officially launch my Finding Home Business. More than just a source for home searches, it will also provide education, design/decor trends, and highlight local businesses and community leaders. I will start this morning by committing to writing my goal down every day and time blocking 5 hours a week to create a plan and implement it.

  172. Tina Pruitt

    My goal is turn my passion for shopping/thrifting into a 5 figure business this year (first year!). I will achieve this by refining my processes, establishing routines that squelch my ADHD, and always leaning in to business mentors and learning from their successes and challenges! Thank you Marie! 💕

    • Tina Pruitt

      See my “ps” below!
      January Task / Process started yesterday! ✅

  173. GET SHIT DONE. Take action!!! In order to start my business I actually have to get things done not just daydream.
    Take myself seriously and treat with respect as I do with the boss at my day job. I don’t show up there and wait to see if am inspired or not to do the work. I just do it. No question asked! Do any of us go to work and say like ‘hmmm I really don’t feel like working today…I might go home and have a nap and see how I go…’ ? :)))) Right?!
    So as of yesterday I’m the boss who will fire me in case I don’t tick those lists off. I actually read the book already and I don’t need this gift (no offence Marie). I just wanted to share how fired up I am now and how non negotiable I feel about DOING THE DREAM after reading Everything is Figureoutable. One thing is crystal clear guys. We either make it happen or we don’t. If it’s important enough we’ll make the time, find a way, take the action and most importantly FIGURE it out when things go south.
    May we all use this fire within us to keep us going and embody Figureoutable formula to not just see us through but also enjoy every step of the journey as well.
    P. S. If I was ever to be religious this book would be my Bible. There’s no words to express my gratitude. Thank you Marie <3

        AMEN to this, Sonja! We adore you. Here’s to being your own boss and getting sh*t DONE this year! We’re doing such a big happy dance for you. So thrilled the book has been inspiring! 💖

  174. Amal almayah

    • Amal almayah

      First thing done which is tagging friends on IG post
      My account is final.destiny.9

    • Amal

      I did it!

  175. Linda Lathrop

    Clearing my clutter, beginning today by reflecting and journaling about the purpose of everything I own and plan to keep. Do I need it or can I send each thing on it’s way to someone else for another purpose?
    Day #1 Today – Done

  176. I am going to finish my second youth novel by allocating 30 minutes every morning at my computer before I start my day job to write it.

  177. John Garland

    I am finishing up my latest poetry book; “Looking Forward unto the Greater Tomorrow” and plan to write 2 more books; JR the Wizard Bard: The Teachings of Endor” and “Touched Reality: An Autobiography of a Schizophrenic” by the end of the year. Why? Because I’ve never done it before!! When I wrote the trilogy of “Endor the Wizard,” it was written one year apart. My poetry books were written two to three years apart (the first book, I must say, was 40 years in the making).

  178. LeslieAnne Hasty

    My goals for this 2020 are:
    Build at least 10 more Animal themed journals on my Amazon platform. That will bring my total up to about 40. I’d shoot for more, but also work a full time job, and have a family!
    I believe that if we practice Mindfulness in every area of our lives, even with our furry, feathered and scaly family members, that the world will have to become a better place for everyone.
    So I’m scheduling in 1 hour each weekend to just build journals.

    • LeslieAnne Hasty

      And, i pinned one of the photos at the top to my Pinterest board : Inspiration!
      I’ve also forwarded this e-mail to my 3 artsy friends, who all make and sell their art…

  179. Tramaine Rocke

    I will email my new 2020 accountability partner today and confirm a time this week for us to update each other of our progress with our weekly goals:)

  180. Tina Pruitt

    ps, my first step is to list new inventory every day in January and to understand where my obstacles are in that process and remove them by standardizing my end-to-end listing procedure. I started yesterday with my January Challenge…I am taking note on what is slowing me down, time of day, what amount was completed and the time taken to do one article. So, results and procedures from January should give me insight on the right path to proceed on for rest of the year!

    • Tina Pruitt

      Above comment accompanied by response a few posts up!

      January Task / Process started yesterday! ✅

  181. Make enough money this year to be $30k up by December 21st, 2020. Get paid to do what I love, mostly from home but with a certain amount of being on the road (which I also love).

    • Lisa ji

      On it! (Or did it! If setting the goal is what I need to have done 🙂 )

  182. Find a singing performance opportunity. Did it!

  183. Melanie Timmins

    I did it! 😉

  184. Susan Pitman

    WROTE every one of my goals out! They are in four categories: Heart, health, home and handicraft…and then I honed in on the top ones per category.
    I’m scheduling now – both time AND PLACE – and creating an alternate.
    And today? I’m sharing this with my awesome friend and hoping she will be my accountability partner…
    This is great, Marie! Everything really is figureoutable!
    Here’s to achieving through engaging,
    Susan

  190. Sara Bozio Bralino

    What an inspiration. Going to write my goals down today and start writing them every day!! 💥

  191. Amanda Aksel

    This was an awesome ep! I’ve been writing my goals daily for the year for the past month and it’s making a huge difference. I have six BIG goals from personal to business but the most important one is raising my successors in my a youth leadership position I have. This will be my last year as I’m graduating the division. My goal is to raise 5 capable young women chapter leaders and 5 active Byakuren(behind the scenes support). With prayer and action these young women are appearing in my environment and I feel like for the first time in my four years as leader, I understand how to raise people to stand up. I’m determined to report absolute victory by December 2020!!!

    • Amanda Aksel

      Done!

    Thank you Marie for giving me that little extra that I needed. I’ve been doing pretty good with my goals so far except for the exercise part. I am going to work out right now in my studio. P.S. I recently found gel pens and OMG, they are my all time favorite pen.

    • Penelope

      I completed my workout (I’ll be sore tomorrow). I think I tagged my daughter and my niece, not sure how to use Instagram yet. I’ll ask my daughter for help when she wakes up. Thank you Marie and your team for always inspiring me. I wouldn’t be here without you. Big hug!

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        GO Penelope! We’re so happy you’re here and taking awesome care of yourself. 🤗 XOXO

  195. Sarah

    So already brought the book as a Christmas present for me self after doing the decade in review and felt great and just wanted to say thank you.
    No new years resolutions just focused goals and gratitude practices that i am undertaking.
    Just wanted to send some love you way all the way from the UK as you do so much for us and theirs not a lot we can do in return.
    Hit me up if you think of anything though just really and truly saying thank you again would love to share on Instagram although i do not use it.
    So positive thoughts and so much joy and enthusiasm coming into this new because of you and loving the book.
    Thank you

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      Thank you SO much for the kind words, Sarah – they really mean the world! We’re thrilled to hear the Decade in Review was a positive process for you and hope you’re getting a lot out of the book, too ☺️ We’d be so grateful if you share our work and episodes with anyone you know who could also benefit! XO

  196. I’m going to hand out a big postcard with my business info on it at a chamber of commerce meeting today!!!

  197. Kath

    My intention for 2020 is to create healthier habits in my life, mentally and physical. Continue with my running and weight training goals-run a 15 k trail run in October. Mental: work on my triggers that cause me to spiral into a mental ditch, and change those negative actions that I take to coupe with negative situations. And my soul is saying that I need to write about it. So I spoke with the one person that I know who has wrote a book and asked her to mentor me. So after I spoke to her, I ran to Walmart and purchased good gel pens and fun composition notebooks in order to start my journey.

  198. Danette

    2nd day of B-School (that I purchased last year) 6-9AM in my home office.

  199. Nikita Aggarwal

    Hey Marie. I am Nikita, a recent college graduate and my goal is to build a meaningful business this year. I think a lot and research everyday, to be able to put my ideas on the table with confidence, sometimes no real world experience makes me take a long deep breath and another moment, I push myself again to just GET ONTO IT!
    1. I recently started writing my top goals of the year every morning and a breakdown of how to make them possible. You saying that, confirms I’m doing the right way 🙂
    2. I usually work on my plans throughout the day, writing, learning, researching, noon-evening. My only place to focus is my study corner with all my books and supplies, and from now on, I’ll also stick with a specific time so I’m not fiddling around with different activities.
    3. Right after learning these strategies, I shared my goals with my best friend, and also updated him with recent steps I took. Good part, he is willing to help and make sure I’m working on my dreams. :))

    • Nikita Aggarwal

      DONE!
      3 hours of some productive work and I plan on to keep working at the same time everyday to maintain discipline and focus. Thankyou so much! You are such an inspiration for so many women 🙂

  200. My goal is to help my team identify their goals for the year and develop an actionable plan. We meet first time this year on tuesday,January 14th in a rented office space i have already arranged for. I am actually already working on my presentation as well strategies.

    Thanks Marie, this video is so timely. It re-enforced some points i already had as well opened me up to new one. You are a star

  201. Kellie Porter

    I will find a job this year!! I moved from Atlanta, GA to Copenhagen, Denmark and have been searching for a job for more than a year. I have recently discovered your videos and podcast and I feel like a have a friend cheering me on. I wrote my end of decade journal/goals and guess what… my fifteen year old son and my husband did them with me! So, the actions I have taken is that every day I do something pertaining to the job search. I have updated my CV and created profiles on a few job search sites here in Copenhagen AND I signed up for a job search coaching seminar for tips on the Danish work force scene. I am listening to your book on Audible but would love a signed copy and some of those awesome stickers!! Today – I will enlist a friend to be my accountability partner – thank you for the suggestions and 2020 here we go!

  202. 1. Setting up my new office on Weds, Jan 8th and posting 10 new income streams that are possible in my business on my white board.

  209. JoAnn Janke

    I am approaching retirement age and need a “second career” to supplement my income. I also need to stay busy. This is the year I start on my journey by starting a crafting business. I will need to practice and learn before I am ready to start selling, so it’s super important for me to carve out time and a quiet place to practice. My first action step was to order some equipment I will need; it is getting delivered this week ! Along with that, I am rearranging my home office to make it a comfortable crafting space, with storage and work space that will keep me motivated and draw me in so I don’t want to leave. I have been studying what is available in my local stores to help me determine the direction I want to go and to identify any missing needs in my local marketplace. Thanks to Marie, I now have the supporting strategies I need to make this happen ! I have already written it down on my white board; I have scheduled time a few days a week on my calendar and I have committed to a friend that I will keep her in the loop so she can see what fabulous items I make . Thank you Marie; Everything TRULY is Figureoutable !

    • JoAnn Janke

      I did it !

  210. Goal: Registering my business in autumn this year, because I love helping women to have pleasure and freedom plentiful. I just love coaching and it’s my way of helping humanity. In order to help as many people as possible I have to show up and serve, so today’s step forward is writing my newsletter.

  211. I wrote down my goal for this year this morning at work. Will definitely continue that each morning, as I’m at work early in the morning, the same time each day.

  212. This year I am going to create the online course business that I’ve been dreaming up. I am capable, and I can do this! My first step is to write down my goal 15 times today.

  213. Karen

    Start a new goal journal, focusing on 3 must-done things in everyday. Today!

  214. This year in February I will be selected for the Dallas Ted Talk fellow! My Ted Talk will reach global success by unlocking the keys to low back pain ~ one of my gifts of illumination to humanity!

  216. Allison Oelger

    I commit to killing the sugar dragon, more veggies and daily movement. I have written this goal down in my journal but now I’ll incorporate writing it 15 times a day. When I crave sugar I will do one of the following: take a walk, drink a LaCroix, leave the kitchen, read a book, listen to music, call or text a friend. Sugar leaves me feeling mean, anxious and gross. It does me no favors as a cancer survivor and health advocate. I am doing this to feel healthy, calm and strong. I am worth it!

    • Allison Oelger

      Today I woke up and did 45 minutes of Barre3! I’ve written my goals in my journal 15 times and I will not eat sugar today!

      • Allison Oelger

        I did it!

  217. Wrote down —15x—-I will make $500 selling my art on Sanibel -this weekend. Which made me also take into consideration the things that needed to be scheduled—so I scheduled them. Done.

    A friend and I have decided to team up on our creative businesses because we have a similar audience and the accountability with the other person is boosting both of our productivity levels. I will get more consistent with writing my goals down daily. Thank you for the support!

    • Amanda Cook

      I did it!

  224. Julie Colibri

    I am back to doing merkaba meditation daily–and following Marie’s advice to write down my goals, set a time and place to work on them, and follow up weekly on my efforts with a friend or better yet an accountability group!

  225. Beta launch my online legacy training program (even if it isn’t perfect) by the end of the week of January 7.

  226. I am starting my own web based health and wellness education and empowerment website. I have decided to sign up for B school and will be in touch with Kelsey Murphy today to get on the waitlist! Can’t wait to read your book and continue being inspired by you! Thank you.

  227. Cari Crabtree

    I will enjoy a walk outside around our office business complex at 1pm today.

  229. I’m starting a brand new online store that supports pollinators and their habitat. I’ve received new inventory over the Christmas holidays. Yay!
    I’m slowly learning each piece of how to mange my site. TODAY I’m going to get all my products online!

  230. I will Finally record the video add for my online business while hiking with my daughter this Thursday in the Redwood Forest.

  231. Buy a home. Write it down, today, tomorrow and everyday thereafter.

    • Hey Natalie, think about making some of your passwords buyahome, ownahome2020 or something like that so you are typing it over and over again each time you have to enter a password.

  232. I am going to run 50 miles this month! I am 10.3 miles in so far. Get it gurl!

  233. I did it!
    Top goal written down 15 times today in my daily journal. Will form a daily habit.
    I already have accountability partners and write down my goals regularly but not 15 times per day 🙂

    “I am the global best-selling author of Meditations of a Former Statue”

    Thank you 💕

  234. I feel like this is cheating because I’m already doing these things! I don’t write my goals down multiple times a day, but I do read them every day, write them out once a week afresh and ‘tick off’ daily when I’ve taken a step (baby or big) towards it!
    Accountability FB message every Sunday night with a friend on our goals to read 20 books this year / do 5 tasks a week towards marketing our businesses, and to keep up with my daily habits from 2019 of meditation, exercise and healthy eating!
    Finally, I literally began time-blocking (tasty time chunks as you call it!) this weekend towards those steps towards my goals; ensuring to use a verb at the beginning of the to-do item. I love how it all came together!

    Today’s to-dos are to finish this page revamp & outreach directly to someone who enquired about my work!

  235. Rema

    i need to buy a journal today and till then write it down on my planner and start writing my goals down 15 times a day. doing a detox, reading the books I ordered on cleaning, anxiety, starting a homeschooling group, next week but first will create a homeschooling facebook group today with my friends.
    Done!

  236. Therese

    Implementing the marketing message strategy I am developing with a coach by Feb. 15.

  237. Girl if it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t of come out of my mental rut.

    First, can you be my friend to schedule an appointment with?

    Second, my goal is to be a top producer of children’s books

    Third, I will write it down every day

    I am a top producer
    I am a top producer
    I am a top producer

  238. I started writing my goals EVERY SINGLE DAY in October – when the Everything is Figuroutable Daily Practice was introduced by Marie in her special training! Never looked back since, and I recommend it to EVERYBODY. Even if you are highly doubtful: what do you have to lose? It takes like two minutes a day to do the bare minimum! Simply write “I commit to becoming a world-class athlete/a successful trainer/published writer/whatever you desire”, and it will already make a change!

    • DONE EVERY SINGLE DAY SINCE OCTOBER 2019!!

      • Susan

        Thanks for another perfect post, Marie and team! Your inspiration + education = transformation formula never fails to get my inner drill team bouncing into (oookayladiesnowletsgetin) formation.

        WHEN: Complete list by noon AST.
        WHERE: Hotel lobby, if outlet available. If not, hotel room.

        • Susan

          No outlet needed for ye old pen and paper, huh? Tell that to jet lag brain up here.

          • Susan

            Done! P.S. to my fellow pen geeks – if you haven’t tried Pilot Frixon erasable pens, find some for those daily lines. Rainbow of colors in ballpoint, markers, highlighters and they erase like you won’t believe. 😳😳😳😍 deep future fun fo yo 2020!

            IG’d your post to my sister sisters.

    I am going into year 2 with the same MLM company. I want to be number 1 in 3 counties. I have had such a hard time balancing doing this and life. I have been trying to do it by myself to no avail. I would appreciate all the direction I can get.
    Thank you
    Sherry Wheeler

    • The good news – everything is figureoutable.
      In addition to Marie’s book and awesome videos, in “Girl Stop Apologizing”, Rachel Hollis has a chapter on asking for help and another on building a foundation for success.

  240. I am doing it today and right now. Goal is to grow business by double this year. Will set up new opt in and email it to my list. My list is golden and most important asset I have. Also putting opt in on website.
    I have been following Marie for year and have been through B School twice- love it! Moved my business from home (Kim S Joy Stained Glass and Jewelry) to brick and mortar (Art Happens on Tarboro) in November 2018.

  241. Rachel

    I am going to list all my goals for this year.

  242. My main goal this year is to protect my positive energy by keeping a morning routine where I meditate/sit still with myself, go for a leisurely walk and remind myself what my bigger goals are everyday.

    The last six months I spent them completely submerged in worry, self-doubt and darkness around finding clients for my business. I was always next to my computer and I punished myself; I didn’t do anything that wasn’t work-related cause I had “so much to do”. That made me have a constant negative energy where I saw scarcity rather than abundance and where I lost confidence in myself.

    This year I can’t allow that to happen. So I am sticking to my morning routine, that does include writing my goals and scheduling my actions steps like Marie suggests.
    Also, by sticking to a routine I can gain pride on myself again, and I need to celebrate small victories so badly!

  243. Kim

    PERSONAL GOAL: Take Mondays off for art/painting. I tried doing this on Fridays last year… it didn’t work, something always came up!

    • Kim

      SCHEDULED: Recurring appointment set digital; inked in Bullet Journal
      good weather: take a walk with my sketchbook, and use it! bad weather: turn off my computer and drag out the paints in my home office
      WRITE IT: Monday is my art day… 15 x – This felt pretty goofy writing down.. on a Tuesday, but by the time Monday rolls around, it will be second nature and there’s NO WAY I’ll skip ART DAY!!
      ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER: We already had a meet up scheduled today – perfect timing!
      INSTAGRAM: Done – 4 peeps xoxo

  244. Carol Richer

    Done. Setting goals!

    My goal is to get my first online course out there and hoping that this side hustle becomes my main job. I want to change something in this world. Make it better! Help the younger women find their place in the corporate world. I have set a weekly meeting with friends to be sure that I do the job. My accountability team who kicks my “behind” if I don’t to the work 🙈🙈🙈

  246. Heli

    My goal is to get my website working again. And the first step is to go through templates to find a suitable one and call the person who is going to do it for me.

    • Heli

      Done! I am so grateful to you Marie and the team Forleo! I’ve been meaning to do this for the last two years, but haven’t ‘cos it’s such a huge task. Unbelievable! It took less than an hour and I got to have a nice chat with a friend of mine. I don’t have an instagram account, so I’ll be spreading the good word by other means.

  247. I love this and it is easy to do, keep the goal top of mind daily! Talk about multiplying my chances of reaching my goals, I am ALL in!! I commented on Instagram and tagged a bunch of people. I tagged the place where my amazing book club meets, and I hope that I know WHO wins the book and that they bring it to book club in Feb. Everything is Figureoutable is our book and how fun would it be to show up with a signed copy!! WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.
    I love reading the comments as well, thank you!

  248. My goal is to create something new that others will want to buy 👍🏻

  249. Alexandra Matias

    This year I am going to take the Health Coach course by IIN to help me in my business. I am going to block off two hours a day on my agenda to dedicate to studying!

  250. Mary R.

    I will add a space in my planner to write down my goal everyday.

  251. Magdalena

    I quit my job after 10 years last summer. I found a new job in November, only to get fired after 3 weeks (I guess, it wasn’t ment for me). So now is my goal to find really the right job by trusting my intuition and to start also a little side business with my friends.
    Scheduling my job hunting and reporting right now in my calender! Thanks for this inspiration.

    • Magdalena

      Done! YEAH!

  252. Jacquie

    I am going to work towards teaching my High Note Clinic every weekday in my newly organized home study starting NOW and at 8:00 am every morning!

    • Jacquie

      I did it!

  253. Write my #1 priority down 15x-today!

    • Done! Complete! shared this post with friends/family, and I can’t wait to share the giveaway prizes, since I’ve already got my copy!

  254. Qweenie

    I have always known how to cook, but it was never really something that I enjoyed doing. I always looked at it as if it were a chore. So much so, I used to eat out daily. Six months ago I began transitioning from eating out daily to cooking more often. Six months later, not only do I cook daily, but I also cook for family and friends AND I also became a vegan along the way! I now specialize in cooking vegan dishes and I post pictures of my dishes on Instagram. My family and friends are so amazed at some of the dishes that I’ve “veganized” that they’re all telling their friends, and so on. They’ve been encouraging me to start a business where I make vegan plates of food to sell. I’ve been giving that a lot of thought, particularly since there aren’t any vegan/vegetarian eateries in my neighborhood. So I had consultation with someone who is a marketing and brand specialist to see if they can help me bring my business idea to fruition. I was so impressed with what we discussed during the consultation that I’ve decided to contract them. My first plan of action is to have a formal meeting with the marketing specialist to go over strategy of how to launch my business. That meeting has been scheduled for later on today! Yay! I am so excited!

    • Qweenie

      I did it!!!

  255. Julia M Walthall

    My goals this year are to do 4 things every single day – Read, Meditate, Journal, and Exercise! I’ve put up a separate, dedicated calendar to track this daily. Now, some days I’ve missed one, but I know that each new morning is another chance to get back on track. I read to increase my mental agility and improve my vocabulary – this goes hand in hand with journaling so I can organize my thoughts and really dig in to my motivations and actions. Exercise isn’t just for a healthy body, but a healthy brain and mental state. And of course meditation as a positive coping skill for all the madness and frenzy in the world – to make a peaceful space for myself whenever I need it.

    • Julia M Walthall

      I did it!

  256. I am writing my goals daily and looking for an accountability partner. I am doing this

  257. Olivia

    Committed to finding a meaningful, well paying job. Already working on this daily in the early mornings and in the evenings. At the library on my days off from my current job. I’ll start writing down this goal in my journal…where I also note three gratitudes each night.

  258. Hey Marie, I live in Barcelona and absolutely loved the part in the book about your epic Airport hustle!! My goal has been on my new years list for over 2 decades and I always used to hit a wall, since reading your book I feel so insanely inspired and motivated and have already recommended it to all my friends. Today my 1st step is to do step 1 of your video and write my goal down 15 times! I’m also going to share a post on my instagram of your book on Barcelona beach to help spread the love! @cycleyourheartout come back and visit Barcelona again soon, Sarah

  259. I’m going to start writing down my goals every morning. I had no idea that it increases your chance of completing them by 42%. How exciting! I’m going to write down my top two goals today in my planner and make that a habit.

  260. Ana

    I’m a system dropout and I want to thrive because I made that bold decision!
    So, I was a geek all my life, a good girl, all the teachers and professors loved me, went to the economy and business school as my parents proposed. Although it was painful to follow all the rules (because I’m actually free-spirited and creative type), I made my network during college, found a great job. Everything was moving so fast and next thing you know, I was doing sales of an enterprise software.

    Everything went down the spiral from there – things got so serious and demanding, my moral values shaken, was forced to smile while I was really sick out of stress and sense of unfulfillment & frustration.
    That one escalated big time and after getting myself fired, I was too tired and too angry for being forced to find myself in such a damaging situation, that I prolonged my vacation before searching for a job.

    Wow, and I got pregnant!
    And there it was.
    New life, a new meaning.
    I somehow ended up meeting this beautiful embodiment of everything that is sacred and powerful in a woman – my Doula.
    I knew I needed to go in that direction after receiving such value from her.
    It is a combination of storytelling, making powerful circles, doing something ACTUALLY meaningful, so raw and real, helping women, helping create new consciousness, helping reduce fear and trauma AND it involves so much self-work! It is an amazing thing to do.

    I took my first steps, been on three educations, had my first labor experience (except mine :)) and it went great. It is so big, important and beautiful but such hard work also. I’m really enthusiastic about it.

    So, the year 2020. is going to be a year I’m going public. Opening my own business, doing workshops, expanding my experiences, make myself tenable in a society where doula is a new phenomenon and nobody ever heard of it. All that with a toddler.

    I have big ideas and goals, and I know I need to be organized to pull it off – and that is my weakness.
    How to put all of these in action?
    Still don’t know for sure!

    I need to FIGURE IT OUT! Like, now! 🙂

  261. Angel Zink

    My 2020 Vision is to focus on completion… I’m great at starting things, but not awesome at following all the way through. I’m starting small, and I’m doing a decluttering challenge to get me in the right creative space at home.

    • Angel Zink

      I’ve already cleared out 2 shelves in my home office! Done!

  262. Hi Marie,
    I am doing the book and it is fantastic! It’s all doable.
    My goal is to have my amazing script in PRODUCTION! I am open to all connedctions and getting the money moving. It is a huge project and I am having a blast. I will write out my goal 15 times every morning. So the schedule becomes meditation, journal and writing goals. Thank you.

    • KATHLEEN ONEILL

      I did it!

  263. Peggy

    I am going to write down my goal in INK! And make an appt with an accountability partner who will be honest with me!!!

  264. Saadiah Quddus

    So, I am starting straight away by writing down my goals 15 times,
    When: just after I finish this comment
    Where: on my study table, in my diary…

  265. I have started writing down my goals on my calendar and will rewrite them today.

  266. 1. DONE.
    Complete a brain dump. After 23 pages of mostly unhealthy crap I had been holding onto. I felt so much more lighter and less overwhelmed and stressed by it all.
    Thank you Marie for your words of wisdom.
    2.
    I will work on my business plan for 1 hour daily until it is completed. Within 5 days max. I will start to schedule 30 minutes daily to start the many important letters I need to complete rather than a ‘to do list’ as I have been very overwhelmed by it all and it makes me angry when I have to remember what happened. If I go over the 30 mins that fine. Try and think of it as a third person.
    3.
    Regularly meet two friends who are also in the planning stages for starting a business. To update each other and to offer help and support where needed.

    Thank you for being you and for honouring your dreams and goals. If you hadn’t you wouldn’t be helping all of us. Happy New Year everyone make the day matter xx

  267. I’m writing my second book this year and I haven’t scheduled it- so that you for the kick up the butt Marie! I will do it, I will do it, I will do it….

    Done!

  268. Luiza

    As soon as you got to point 2 i opened my schedule to make appointments and alerts to get on track. Done!

  269. Erika Sarmiento

    I love this post and it was right what I need it. My first step is gonna be to set SMART goals for myself and writte them down!

    • Erika Sarmiento

      I did it!

  270. Ava

    Love this, Marie! Thank you for everything you do! You’re a true inspiration!

  271. Yudelkis

    Hi! Marie my goals resolution is going to start in New York and I’m going to start right away meaning now I’m so excited to finally make my dream come true and with B-school everything is going to be figureoutable I know the wait is going to be worth it thank you

  272. Emi

    One of my goals this year is to practice “I don’t give a $h1t” attitude. I care too much of what people think and I need to do this for my own happiness.

  273. Penny Layman

    I created a vision board that I look at everyday and an affirmation which I say everyday which I started in Nov after reading Everything is Figure Outable!

    • Penny Layman

      Done and Doing It!

  274. Penny Layman

    Done & Doing!!

  275. lina

    Going to write down my goal today!

  276. José Levi Bolaños

    From Costa Rica, I’ve simply got to say thank you for inspiring my life the amount that I needed. I did!

  277. Laura Buenorra

    Now. And Right Here. I will write a video script for my sustainability song (to be shot in three different locations throughout my island tomorrow, Thursday and Friday). That video script is going to be written in such a juicy, clear and humourous way that I will know which actions and steps to take smoothly and effortlessly + both me and my friends will have a frigging amazing time shooting it

    • Laura Buenorra

      DOOOOOOONE! Video Script Finished! 😀 Wohooo

  278. Yudelkis

    Done!

  279. José Levi Bolaños

    I did it… Very motivated!

  280. I usually don’t make NYs resolutions because I (of course) don’t keep them. I do have goals and I will implement the strategies to make them happen. My main goal this year is to complete my “Like a Girl Project”, an exhibition with 30-50 oil painting portraits of strong and inspiring women. I should have worked on it last year but I kept getting stuck on smaller projects. This show will happen! I am a successful artist. I am a successful artist, I am a successful artist, I am a successful artist, I am a successful artist, I am a successful artist, I am a successful artist, I am a successful artist, I am a successful artist, I am a successful artist, I am a successful artist, I am a successful artist, I am a successful artist, I am a successful artist, I am a successful artist.

  281. Joanna

    As I hit this year the very beautiful 40 =D I start to think about getting close to the size of me from before pregnancy 🙂 I want to start to run with a group of women from my area, so I’m committing to buying running shoes and going for the run with them. The first step is the worst, right? The other should be a piece of … fruit 😉
    Everything is reconfigurable, so I want to be more happy, slimmer and most of all healthier.
    When? – Wednesday 9 am; Where? Lloyds Park
    Many thanks Marie and Team

  282. Maijosh Giraut

    Pass my last board exam. This is my beast. I started this process back in 2014, and have gone thru one new version of the exam, expired scores, 3 retakes, and now down to the final one. A minor setback last Monday, when I did not pass, but I wont let it stop me. I am an architect is written all over my daily planner.

  283. I’m at home right now, and as soon as I finish typing up this comment, I will be texting my friend to be my accountability parter for my goal to be “The First Baha’i to win a Nobel Peace Prize” because I want more people of the world to know Baha’u’llah’s message of the Oneness of Humanity, The Equality of Women & Men, the Agreement and Harmony of Science and Religion, the need for Universal Education – which will also be in my acceptance speech when I am on stage in Sweden accepting the Nobel Peace Prize elaborating furthermore on why I even do the work that I do and where the money I receive will be going into etc. I will be primarily demonstrating this through my global public health work as an integrative yoga therapist and hoping that the actions that I take will not only move humanity forward together, but also raise collective awareness on our collective spiritual destinies.

    • Done! scheduled accountability sessions as well! Tagged peeps on instagram with my IG account @yogaavecmoi

  284. Marissa Fitrakis

    I will weigh and measure my food today and commit it to my friend. My weight loss journey is at about 50% after struggling for years!

    • Marissa Fitrakis

      Wrote down my food for the day and sent to my friend. Done for today!

  285. Create systems to minimise the time I need to be present during lessons of my dance school.

    • Darja

      I am doing it @darjabardo

  286. I’m going to meditate everyday from today, and guess what, I had done my first practice this morning before watching this episode!!!!

  287. I am going to start accepting clients for my fertility coaching business this month!

  288. OMG Marie, I had one of those orange radios!!! I know exactly what you are talking about. I was so excited when I saw it, I had to have it!

  289. Well … I’m one of those people Marie. The ones that have had the same goals for a while. It’s not that I haven’t been working towards it, I have actually made progress towards it over the last two years but I decided that THIS YEAR has to be the year that I will finally make a full time income from my business.

    I really liked doing your three part decade in review, wrote everything down religiously and went through it to decide what was that really inspired me and what I wanted to do. I also did the exercise in EIF book where you say to write for a whole week pages of “what I truly want is…”. I really liked it. It gave me lots of nice insights. You’re very right when you say that writing gives you lots of clarity ( or at least it does to me for sure !!).

    To remind me every day what I need to do, I have a quote from your book on a post it stuck on m my bedroom door, “Can’t means Won’t. Your dreams aren’t made or broken by anyone but you. #everythingisfigureoutable.” I wrote it down on a post it, when I heard you saying this out loud on a webinar to sell the book. It really struck me and moved me to tears, when I heard you saying it. Because it was so raw and true!

    After having read EIF, I loved it so much that I went on to buy three more copies for my three best friends for Christmas. My aim was to encourage them to “figure out their life” too as I know that every single of them has their own struggles and I knew that your book could help them.

    As a Bschooler, I was familiar with the tips number 2 and 3 that you shared in this video above but,although I was familiar with number 1 too I have never taken it seriously ( despite I just said that writing things down can be quite powerful!Ha!).So my next step is to start writing my main goal down every day to remind myself and stay focused. Where? In my bullet journal on my desk, every day, before doing my to-do list for the day after. So that I can see my goal in front of me every morning along with my to do list.

    Oh one last thing… I really love those STICKERS (especially Jersey Marie one! Lol #nobullshitexcuses) so I do hope to get them. #CHEEKYFACE But If not,that’s ok too. I have enjoyed sharing my experience with your ” everything is figureoutable” philosophy on here and just wanted to let you know that I love you and I’m in awe with you, even though we live miles away and the only time I’ve seen you live has been last year a few meters away from me in London during your book launch! Keep rocking, Marie

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      We adore you, Ermy! It’s clear that you’re really going deep with yourself and we applaud you for actually doing the exercises in the book and the Decade in Review.

We’re so grateful to have you as an amazing, generous part of this community and can’t wait to see what 2020 holds for you. Please keep us posted!

    • Just an update to say I’ve been writing my goals down so far! 🙂 Plus also liked the IG post about the give away and tagged my boyfriend and one of my best friend in it ( my IG is @thelanguagerose). 🙂

  290. I am writing my goals down every day when I get home from work!

  291. I have an audio book goal. And yesterday I asked my sister to be my accountability partner.

  292. I want to be an excellent Nutritionist and help more people. So I will do at least one thing everyday that will help me grow. I will choose one topic for the week and research a little bit everyday to saturate my knowledge.

  293. BIG GOAL: Launch my online program and make it evergreen.
    WHY: To Help woman release the weight they carry around mentally, emotionally and physically and gain the inner and outer strength to follow and fulfill their dreams come what may!
    WHERE: In my home, online and in person.
    WHEN: NOW!
    Marie, I am reading your book and absolutely love it. I read it before going to sleep at night. I gifted it to my two eldest children Dani, 24 and Sean 22 and will encourage my 16 year old twin girls Kelly and Lily to read it when I am done with reading it. I look forward to being one of the receivers of your generous gifts especially that gorgeous vegan leather journal. Thank you and love you!

      We love your “why” and are cheering you on, Eileen! Your kids are so lucky to have you as a mom, encouraging them and showing them what it looks like to continually learn and take action toward your goals. We’re so grateful to be connected 💞

  294. I’m starting a new journal where I write my goals out every morning as soon as I wake up, and started it today! I’ve also committed to working out at 6:30am every morning Monday – Saturday, and today makes two days in a row I’ve stuck to it!

  295. Bertha Hines

    This is my first step! Self motivation has been challenging for me. I have a book inside of me and I’ve captured so many thoughts and ideas on whatever I can write on, but I haven’t been able to pull it all together.
    I truly want to achieve my goals consistently and this is the start!
    Thank you for being transparent.

    • Bertha Hines

      I did it!!!

  296. Natalie Fales

    My goals are to help as many women as possible with their health and wellness. It’s to help women learn to love themselves and become the best versions of themselves. I have been writing down my goals since the start of the new decade! I plan on starting a weekly check in with my tribe to to see where we are all at with our goals!

  297. Cindy

    New Year..Moving ON in all the good directions despite odds.
    Started creating again and feeling great about it.
    Time to shine..again!! I know you have my back so….TADA!!!
    Sent your podcast to 3 friends (hope that’s ok) and awesomeness is spreading 🙂
    Thank you, thank. you~~

    • Kate - Team Forleo

      Here’s to shining! Thank you so much for sharing the podcast, Cindy 😊 it means the world to know it resonates and that you’re helping to spread the awesomeness.

  298. I am FINISHING my business plan with my goal strategies for 2020 this week.

    • DONE!!!! 🙂 Put my butt in my office chair yesterday and today and it’s DONE! Thanks for the guidance, Marie!

  299. Liliana Ventura

    Fitness/Wellness Goal:
    Integrate weightlifting into my daily routine so I can gain strength and stamina that will allow me to be a committed first time mom and a successful entrepreneur.

    First Action:
    Do 30 min of leg-focused weightlifting based on DLD Nation protocols and record the exercises on my phone for proper form on Monday, January 6 at 6 pm (as soon as my husband gets home from work so he can take care of our son while I’m exercising).

    • Liliana Ventura

      Happily reporting that I did it! I’d never done leg-focused weightlifting in my life, and so many factors felt like they were working against me (it was getting late, I was feeling tired from caring for the baby all day, baby was crying during the workout, etc.). But I reminded myself I want to be SUCCESSFUL, and that means keeping promises to myself (not just others), whether or not I feel like it. Then I started following my coach’s video prompts for the various exercises on my laptop, put my workout music on, and pressed play on my phone video. Before I knew it I had completed my first leg circuit ever!!

      I’m proud of myself for not letting myself break a promise to myself but follow through instead to build the foundation of meaningful success. Thank you for the inspiration and accountability Marie!

      • Kate - Team Forleo

        YES Liliana! We’re so proud of you for showing up and keeping that promise to yourself. You’re already setting a beautiful example for your family by taking care of yourself and showing up even when there are distractions. Great job! We’d love to hear how things are going, so please keep us posted. We’re cheering you on 👏

  303. My goal is to have a successful sustainable writing business – MarieWriter.com
    I wrote down an intention statement-
    I live life to the fullest adventure. I am financially and emotionally secure and free. I have 6 months reserves. I have a profitable writing career and I am a prolific writer I LOVE MY LIFE. My #1 Goal is to have 5-10 retainer clients and make $15,000 a month. My action steps-
    1-Commit to planning the next day, and reviewing my action steps and their locations every morning, as well as viewing my vision board to start my day. And giving myself a ‘star’ when I follow through.
    2- Contact 3 businesses a day that are my ideal client.
    3- Write 1 Linkedin post a day targeted at my ideal client.

    • DONE! and I got one retainer client since the post!

      • Kate - Team Forleo

        Marie! That’s amazing 👏 great work getting right to it and getting a client. We’re cheering you on and would love to hear how things are going. Keep us posted <3

  304. This is perfect timing!! I just sat down yesterday and scheduled actionable steps into my calendar to work towards my goal of growing my business large enough I can quit my 9-5. Thank you Marie for teaching this in B-School – it is so powerful! The alumni email I received yesterday was the perfect reminder to get scheduling!

    • Kathryn Shepard

      Just reviewed my calendar and checked off today’s action items!

  305. One of my goals, it’s not spectacular, but simple, is to keep my kitchen cleaner and tidier! I plan to work in the kitchen 15 to 30 minutes each day, with a goal of in the mornings, targeting what’s most needed. Washing dishes, putting things away, cleaning surfaces, mopping the floor, taking food inventory, etc. I hope that it’ll prevent that feeling of overwhelm by not letting it pile up. In the end it may help with my self esteem! This morning was the third day in my goal.

  306. Alice W

    Starting tonight just before bedtime, I will write down my goal of becoming a person who wakes up every morning to a 20 minute movement and a 15 minute meditation habit. This goal writing will be a part of my bedtime ritual. I will tell my friends about this and encourage each other’s transformation over the next few weeks and months. We’ll schedule a monthly GNO to celebrate our incremental achievements. Getting fired up Marie!!

    • Kate - Team Forleo

      Awesome, Alice! Movement and meditation are such great ways to start the day grounded and purposeful.

  307. Moses

    Thank you Marie so much for this!!
    Here’s one of my goals:
    I will lose 10 lbs working out and eating better.
    Where & When:
    I will work out in my apartment gym and local park. I will do this 5 days a week Starting two days ago (1/5/2020) & eat all the right foods tailored to my specific body type.

  308. Lois Fray

    I’m going to walk for 2 miles now, in my neighborhood.

  309. I am going to get on top of things and get super organized with my business which will give me more time to pursue my art. It all starts with getting it on paper. I have seen the results incrementally this past year and you have re enforced that logic. Win, win win.
    Done

  310. Making time to write down some goals today. Honestly I’m still finishing my “decade in review” from the previous video series. It’s about making time and scheduling this (your videos) into my day as well, a little self improvement each day. I just need to improve the follow through 😉.

    • Kate - Team Forleo

      It’s all about the small, consistent steps, Melissa. Great job writing down your goals and showing up here. We’re cheering you on!

  311. Tomorrow, I’m going to make my idea for a podcast real by putting together a questionnaire to send out to friends and family – I’ll ask anyone who’ll listen to spread it far and wide to help me gather as large a pool of perspectives and stories for my project as possible. Next step will be to reach out to people who return the questionnaire and have stories that could fit with my idea, to get interviews in the diary. Eep! <3

    • Done! I got so many great responses already, and now have the first 10 episode topics, music, and artwork pretty much sorted too. This is beginning to feel real…! Thanks, Marie & Team! 💞🎉

  312. Donna E. Porter

    I am 60 and lost my dear father near the end of last year. It has been traumatic for me. Now both of my parents are gone as is the family home. I had an idea years ago about getting TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certified, which will open up the world to me, but I did not want to leave the country while my Dad was still with us. Now that he is gone, I feel I need a BIG change and a good distraction in life. This will be a major career change for me. Yesterday, I took step #1 (on my “PLAN 2020” List) and renewed my passport. After much research, today, I will register for the class in Prague, Czech Republic and pay the deposit. This will be an intense 4 week course that will test me at every level of my being, but I know this is what I want to do with the rest of my working life. Teaching English to children or teens in other countries can dramatically change their lives and open up worlds of opportunity for them. I have not decided in which country to teach yet because I know there are some restrictions for people my age, but that’s ok, I now it’s all……… figureoutable 🙂

    • Kate - Team Forleo

      Donna, we’re so sorry about your dad’s passing, and we’re sending you so much Team Forleo love. You have such a clear and meaningful goal, and we’re so proud of you for taking the steps to make it happen. We’d love to hear how your TEFL course goes, so please keep us posted. We’ll be thinking of you and cheering you on ❤️

  313. Tammy Golden

  328. I am finishing a book this year. 242 pages of a draft and doing final rewrite Jan and Feb. So creating a new website this week and at noon today will write content for those pages and select photos to give my web designer. Since I’m writing book I opted to hire a designer for website. I’ll post behind the scenes research photos and my journey of writing book in new blog, plus passages from book, on new website once it’s up. The book is memoir but someone else’s story. It’s been an exhilarating and hard journey but taken me to Hawaii and Mississippi and other places. My 2019 was crazy. Hope to share and inspire.

    • I DID IT! Content written. Photos selected. Website will be up soon. Working on the first blog post and photos today. Then back to book manuscript for next 2 months to finish book! Loved seeing you at RISE business in Nov and discovering this new world of growth! I’ve received such pushback of going for my goals and traveling last year for it that in 2020 I chose my word. Capable. And I I’d like to add…Silence. to naysayers. I no longer hear you…Thanks Marie!

  334. Dyan

    I started off the year calmly, paused -though motivated- but with intention to tap into my intuition and set my resolutions with purpose. I did 3 small ones: get healthy, be money savvy and start my online business once and for all. The year started and I’ve watched my daily dose of veggies, minerals I’m short on and have stuck to my yoga. Finished my 2 books on finances and money, going to the bank to open a better savings account. But about my business I just let it fliw a little as I was still doubtfull as I like parts of my day job so much.

    I received a reminder from B-school dates this year, had an issue at work that reminded me why I need independence sooner than later… so down to the point. I will retake Start the right business today and do the job to be ready for March 2.

    Wait for today’s reply that the first part is done by today!!!

  335. Janelle

    Work on my business/website and speech at a local coffee shop!

  336. I have 3 goals this year.
    1) Live a nomadic life – full-time.
    2) Double my billings.
    3) Get my health on track (at 54…its about time. I need this body to last me another 40 years).
    So…I am going to join a gym and enroll in a healthy food program with home delivery.

  337. Sanam Lou

    My goal is to create a platform to help others who suffer from fibromyalgia and other autoimmune diseases like I have. I want to create a supportive community, offer helpful content and tools that allow everyone to live their best lives.

  338. I’ve been trying to write on my blog for a while now but I haven’t been able to since I was extremely stressed at a job that hated. I already quit my job, so that’s done. Now I’m going take my butt to my computer and write that blog!

    Thanks Marie!

  339. I think the best thing for me to do will be writing my goal down daily! I’ve wrote things down before, but usually only once and then it becomes out of sight out of mind. So by doing this daily it will be the top focus and easier to work at and I’m so excited that it’s so simple!! Thanks for your wonderful tips!!!

    • Amber V

      Done!! For the 1st 2 days at least, I do plan on continuing this daily though and feel like it’s helped me already! Thank you Marie!! XOXO

      • Kate - Team Forleo

        Awesome, Selin! As Marie’s said before, stretching out of your comfort zone takes you into the growth zone — and amazing things can happen there. 💖Great work!

  343. I’m writing my goal down 15 times today!

  344. I will do an hour of yoga this evening from 8 to 9 pm. I already have the class saved on a USB stick that is plugged in my TV, and I’ve been thinking for a while to start that yoga class. This evening, I’m doing it! And this is an action step towards my bigger goal to move more and improve my health. Yes, I’m doing it.

  345. I just started writing out my big goal for the year in my planner…while watching the video. I’m in my home office and I’m going to love writing this out each day.

    I lost a close friend recently and asked myself what would I want to accomplish if I knew I only had a certain amount of time to live. I knew immediately! I want to finish the novel I am writing. I have written 79, 512 words so far, and I really want to have my manuscript completed by the first half of this year. So, my action step is to schedule writing 5 days a week for a two hour minimum a day.
    This is possible. ❤️

    • Susan Staley

      Done!!!

      • Kate - Team Forleo

        Hey Susan, we’re so sorry to hear about your friend’s passing. What a beautiful way to honor her life and create what you want in yours. You’ve written so much already, and we’re cheering you on as you finish your novel. Sending you tons of Team Forleo love ❤️

    I am profitable, productive, calm and purpose-filled in all I do, with all my relationships, I bring joy to those around me.

    Done!

  353. Jade Olivia

    I wrote down the day before New Years that I will leave my current stagnant feeling living situation that I’ve stayed in for too long and move out of my comfort into the unknown and start fresh so I can think clear and spread my wings to achieve my goals and find my self confidence again.

  354. 1. My primary goal for 2020 is to create awareness of the effects of narcissistic abuse and empower women who have suffered from narcissistic abuse or toxic relationships to overcome their fear of dating and stop the “man hating” so they can date confidently, safely and find their “person”.
    This is something that happened to us but doesn’t define us! It is possible to love again and find the love of your life. I’ve been in a fantastic relationship where I’m treated like a princess for 2 years now. (It makes me cry tears of joy just thinking how lucky I am that I didn’t give up!)
    WHERE: Seminars, Free workshops, Local TV and (hopefully) a TEDx talk!
    WHEN: January 11th I’m giving my first workshop at the AZ Forum workspace.
    WHY: Until a few years ago, I had no idea what narcissistic abuse is and that it is a form of domestic violence -yikes!!! I know there are other women out there who are afraid to trust men and start dating.

    • Done!

      • Did it!

      • Kate - Team Forleo

        You have such clarity and a powerful “why” behind your goals, Deanna, and we’re cheering you on as you take action 👏Thank you for the work you’re doing in the world. Here’s to love, respect, and trust 💞

  355. Jade Olivia

  368. Victoria Cooper

    Already ordered my passion planner for 2020 & started writing my goals down in a mind map form. I usually keep my goals private. However, I am going to take the first steps to share my goals with a close trusted friend. I will choose to share updates weekly on action steps I took that week towards my goals. I know I need the accountability! Thankfully I found someone who will cheer me on & consistently request for updates! First “official” step is to let my buddy know that one of my goals is to share my 2020 goals with them & proceed with a weekly plan to meet up.

  369. Helen

    I’m going to start by writing out my goal every day and scheduling a time to do it (11 AM, back up plan by 1 PM)

  372. Jeannie Dyke

    My Goal this year is to practice maintaining Inner Peace. From there, all other goals naturally come about, and my life is full of ease, joy, and the ability to give back to my world. As I consciously manifest more and more moments of Inner Peace, I know that I am contributing to all humanity by doing my part to create Peace on Earth. Join me! 🙂

  373. I have always written my yearly goals and then break it down further to make smaller goals to be achieved weekly or monthly. Never thought about writing affirmations or goals daily and writing them several times! Something to start today!!! So frickin’ excited!

  374. Maggie

    My big goal this year? increase my net worth by 20k. 20k in 2020.

  376. Rich Gassen

    I am setting a reminder to call or email a friend of mine regularly because I always forget at the appropriate times and think of it later. Apparently, this will improve my chances of success by 95%, says the wonderful Marie. I already have a copy of the book (and have read it cover to cover) but would love to get another in this contest to gift to someone.

    Thanks for all you do!

  377. “I am an award winning filmmaker!”
    That’s one of my top goals for 2020. I released a short film entitled INVISIBLE in October which sheds light on the homeless crisis here in LA with a focus on prevention.
    Having experienced a year of homelessness myself, I know first hand the crisis we face. However, I also believe there are SOLUTIONS!
    My goal is to support women in transition (those who are creative and educated and simply can’t find work due to ageism, biases or being labeled over-qualified) and helping them start their own businesses.
    I submitted my film to six festivals and it has already been picked up by two, so fingers crossed.
    I’m doing the work, believe in my dreams, passionate about supporting others, and bringing about positive change in the world.

    • Kate - Team Forleo

      Thank you for the work you’re doing in the world, Cali! Keep taking action and finding those solutions. We believe in you, and we’re so grateful to have you in our community 💞

  378. Today, I’m going to finish my outline of a course Ive been wanting to do for YEARS! Which is the next step towards my goal for the month of launching it.

  379. pam

    I’m going to get my catalogs stamped and ready to give out for my business tonight.

  380. Alana

    I will write my first damn blog post this week and stop being so freakin afraid! <3 Thanks Marie!

  381. For 2020, I promise myself to simplify life so that the things I do are more impactful. I’m focusing on two main things: fitness (for pain management) and dedicating ample time each day for meditation and relaxation. As a recovering “yes” girl and workaholic, I learned I am more productive, motivated, and experience less pain when I take care of myself. I need joy every day! Examples of how I’m following through is I have dedicated times each day for Barre and yoga (two things I LOVE). Three days a week (Sundays, Tuesday, Thursdays) at the same time I go to Barre class (because I need group motivation sometimes). Three days a week I do Barre at home at lunchtime. I get one “rest” day, which simply means no fitness is scheduled. I set aside 10-30 minutes of yoga asana in the middle of each day during my work break or on my days off in the evening before bed. In addition, I start each day with my lemon water and quiet time. No electronics, no work, just me and the sunrise. This is often when I meditate. After 20-30 minutes, I might read or cook or do a foot soak, whatever suits my fancy for another 30 minutes. Because I have started my day MY way, with relaxation and doing what FEELS good, I am ready to tackle responsibilities. I’ve never been good with schedules, but this one feels GOOD!

      • Kate - Team Forleo

        This sounds so nourishing, Andrea! What a wonderful way to take care of yourself and create more mindfulness and impact in your days. Sending you so much love as you start the new year with these supportive practices!

  382. SATNAM

    What a coincidence Marie! Just yesterday I started writing down my financial goal 20 times and today I get to hear from you on this same idea! KEEP INSPIRING BEAUTIFUL!

  383. Aidy

    I’m going to write down 5 reasons why I even listened to you today 🙂

  384. Lisa Marie Alvarado

    I love the accountability piece. I’ve been private about who I share my courageous dreams with but it doesn’t serve me come momentum time. Today I am committing to building an accountability partner. I also just wrote “Visalia will have the most bitchin’ Womens Herstory Month.” 15 times. My town is in the Bible belt of California and we are in dire need of nurturing and a women’s touch. So I’ve decided to take matters in my own hands and aide in a full month celebrations!
